Pronounced and hidden aims of Trident Juncture 2015 [06 Oct 2015|11:21am]

Originally posted by wiktorkovalski at Pronounced and hidden aims of Trident Juncture 2015
NATO started the biggest and most ambitious exercise in more than a decade. The Trident Juncture 2015 exercise, which kicked off on September 28 to run until November 6 and involves 36,000 personnel from more than 30 Allied and Partner Nations, is taking place throughout Italy, Portugal, Spain, the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and also Canada, Norway, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.

The first stage of the exercise starts with the Command Post Exercise for Strategic and Operational level staff on Saturday 3 October in Zaragoza, Spain.
The pronounced aim of the Trident Juncture drills is to train and test the NATO Response Force, a technologically-advanced high-readiness unit comprising land, air, maritime forces. It is reported also, that TRJE15 has been designed to ensure that NATO concepts and procedures will work in the event of a real crisis.
NATO also claimed that its exercises are transparent, giving a link to what appears to be a partial list of exercises which are conducted by US and other NATO members. But on the official The Trident Juncture 2015 exercise Website there are no data about the involved units. So the transparency is only partial and such covering of the event arises a lot of questions.
Many European media outlets believe the large-scale drill is aimed against Russia. And they really have serious reasons for such point of view.
Though NATO is keen to emphasize that this exercise is defensive in nature, many experts consider it as a nonsense statement since the drills are conducted in Europe, at the Russian or proximity of the border. This would make sense if the military exercise was near, for example, US or Canada borders.
It should be said that not all of the participating countries share the organizers’ anti-Russian slant.
For example, Massimo Zuchhetti, a prominent Italian scientist and peace activist pointing to NATO’s ongoing Trident Juncture 2015 war games is sure, that “it is NATO, not Russia which poses the biggest threat to European peace.” “As a nuclear scientist, I think that Italy is violating the nuclear proliferation treaty by having 80 nuclear bombs stored at the Ghedi and Aviano airbases used by the Americans”, he said.
“What we see now is the militarization of Italian territory with military bases scattered all over the country and one-third of Sardinia set aside for military purposes… That’s why we believe that Italy should pull out of NATO. It’s not an equitable alliance, it’s all about making this country an underdog,” Massimo Zuchhetti, a Turin-based nuclear physicist and founder of the No War, No NATO movement added. Massimo Zuchhetti as many others scientists and activists fears that Italy could be drawn in NATO’s future military adventures, which are totally at variance with the country’s national interests.
In his turn Miguel Martinez Tomey, responsible for EU affairs in the Chunta Aragonesista political party, said, that “the deployment of the NATO troops in the Spanish city of Zaragoza entails risks for the local population and the environment, that is being concealed from the public.”
Obviously not all NATO members support such exercises but they just have no possibility to oppose US because it is US who mainly pays for collective defense and choose the common enemies.

Hysteria about Russian airbase in Belarus has no sense [05 Oct 2015|03:17pm]

Originally posted by wiktorkovalski at Hysteria about Russian airbase in Belarus has no sense
The issue of Russia’s air base deployment in Belarus is now widely discussed in NATO countries.

Russia’s president Vladimir Putin ordered the Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Defence Ministry to open the necessary talks with Minsk. Last month Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that Russia was planning to station a wing of fighter jets at a military airbase in Belarus.
Poland, Lithuania, Latvia are sure that Russian airbase in Belarus would fuel tension in the region. Is there any reason to worry about?
In reality the Russian airbase in Belarus is not directed against NATO and should not be seen as threat to any state. Russia and Belarus has a unified military space and no wonder that they will protect their borders and it makes no difference if Russian or Belarusian planes are located there.
“When the military infrastructure is moving towards borders, this always evokes questions. Russia and Belarus protect their borders," Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said said on Friday. Moreover, it is surprising, why hysteria about the airbase is increasing. The agreement on setting up a Russian airbase that Belarus and Russia are going to sign is the implementation of the bilateral arrangements made in 2009.

Wars. We all understand very well that it’s just somebody’s business, somebody’s money. Cruel, bloody money.
Millionaires, multi-millionaires – their money are used in arms traffic, politics. All that happens in order to earn MORE money. I address to all oligarchs whose money are concerned with politics (and it means that they are concerned with all the wars):
BUY these five paintings! Give your fucking money for them! Hang them in your room, look at them and think about death. Think about those who died for your money. Think about death which is represented on these pictures and think about life which they are washed with – these pictures are sodden with my milk, with my life. I did it as hope that HUMAN life would become more important for you than money. Buy these paintings, accept this life and remember about it always. Look at them and think about the fact that you will die too and all the world can perish if we don’t invest money in life. Everything can disappear, and what for you accumulated all these millions and billions?
Buy these pictures and show to all the people fighting for their lives that you are worth being called a HUMAN BEING. After your death the world will remember that you didn’t live here for nothing.
Please! All those who read this – add me as a friend! Help me to extend my manifest. It must find it’s addressees.

Anti-war movement as anti-Semitic?? [17 Aug 2005|10:07pm]

I've been hearing in some places that the whole "peace movement" is really just a cover for anti-Semites who claim that the Iraq war is a Jewish conspiracy. Seems like guilt by association to me. What do you all think?

Edited to add: Cindy Sheehan is now stating that someone edited the March e-mail to Nightline in which she supposedly said that her son died for Israel and that the war against Iraq was a Jewish conspiracy, and that she never actually said these things. Apparently ABC has been asked to produce the original e-mail that Nightline received in March, to verify whether the version of it posted on the web has been edited or not, and hasn't come up with the original yet.

[ mood | shocked ]

Guys, I just went to see the movie "Fehrenheit 911" today w/ my mom. First of all, I'm Democrat. 2ndly, on a more PERSONAL basis, I just don't like George Bush Jr., period. In all actuality, though, I went to this movie today w/ the "citizen" mode. Not as a Democrat, not as an anti-Bush person, but just as a U.S. citizen. Ok ... this movie ... Words can't even describe. Just one word for this movie, I have: Shocking. I am SERIOUSLY sick to my stomach, guys. This movie rocked me hard - emotionally AS WELL AS physically. No other movie has ever had this effect on me, except for "The Passion of the Christ" by Mel Gibson. It REALLY WAS that effecting (sp? affecting?). I can say a couple observations/opinions about this movie, as well as about the current gov't administration in our White House & the situation our soldiers hold in Iraq right now, from having seen it. They are as follows:

1.) No matter if you're Dem or Rep, you NEED to go see this movie. EVERYONE DOES. This movie ... it is for EVERY ONE. It reaches out to EVERY ONE, I promise this. No matter if you are Republican, no matter if you like Bush, you will DEF. change your mind about him. Guys ... he honestly scares me, esp. after having seen this movie. There's something wrong w/ this man, in my opinion ... he isn't Christian. He is pretending. Greed, corruption, & power envoke his every being. He scares me ... him being in office, as well as what's going on in our country right now, makes me REALIZE that the "end times" ARE HERE, guys. This scares me so so much, esp. since only 144,000 people will be saved when Jesus comes. I want to be one of those. In any case, this movie has made me think more about the Anti-Christ, the end times, & how sick some people are today. (All we can do is pray for Bush, right?)

2.) I am so glad my bro has skipped out on Iraq twice. God, I pray, I don't want Jeremy to go to that place. I will absolutely die if my bro goes there ... if something happens to him. Omg ... I can't even think about it. It is just too upsetting. Anyways, I don't want my bro to go (he's in the military, in case ya didn't figure that out yet).

3.) Michael Moore (the creator/direc/producer of F-911) is hilarious. Not only b/c I don't like Bush & he told the truth about the Bush admin. & the war in Iraq, but b/c his humor comes out through this movie TREMENDOUSLY.

4.) Bush makes me sick to my stomach. It's time for something/someone REAL, it's time for a TRUE CHRISTIAN to step up to the plate, it's time for the U.S. to take a stand & say "No more!" to Bush & his unneccessary, greedy war.

5.) LEARN THE TRUTH. Even if you don't believe it, go see the movie. GO SEE FEHRENHEIT 911!!

Intro [03 Jul 2004|02:41am]

Hey guys. My name is Maggie, & I'm a new member of this comm. I'm a 20/f from Baytown, Tx near Houston & the Gulf of Mexico. Currently, I'm a college student at Lee College here in my town but I plan on transferring to Sam Houston State U in Huntsville, Tx this fall (my major is Elementary Education). Someday, I want to teach 2nd grade, then maybe go back sometime & get my Masters or PhD in Psych, & become an elem school counselor (possibly).
As far as politics & war go ... I am a Liberalistic Democrat who thinks that it is time to "get the Redneck out of the Whitehouse." I love this quote, too: "Keep Texas Beautiful - send Bush to Iraq!" Ha ... In any case, I think that this war is long overdue on an ending.

I think what annoys me the most about all the "powerful stands against George Bush and the war in Iraq" is that they're retarded. I can't remember the URL but I found a site entirely devoted to defacing photographs of George Bush. Wow, you put a Hitler-moustache on him. You sure showed him. I dunno what I would do if I was him.
It's this constant blind, ignorance that really gets me. The sole reason people are doing this is because they have no idea about the politics about the way. Sure, George Bush is a moron but if you knew what a fascist is you might just realise that he ain't one. The most retarded ones I've seen are the ones making witty banter about George Bush's resemblance to a monkey. I'm not defending George Bush here by any stretch of the imagination but if you're gonna slam an individual (which is very over-rated so don't) then do it well for Christ's sake.
Still, A* for effort. I mean, how hard must it have been to alter the image in Paint. You geniuses. I tip my hat to you all.

Can someone explain...? [22 Feb 2004|06:03pm]

[ mood | annoyed ]

Why in the world do these anti-war people think that holding up signs and marching will do anything? It's not helping their cause--it's not like anyone's going to look out their front window and be like, "Wow! The war? I've completely forgotten about that! ..It's so awful!"

The point is... protesting's not going to work. In case no-one's noticed, the Bush administration doesn't give a damn (pardon my French) about them or their stupid signs. They can protest until they turn blue in the face (which I'm eagerly waiting for--maybe that can knock some sense into them).

Anyone with an explanation...? (By the way, I'm waiting for an anti-war lunatic to come up with an excuse such as 'Martin Luther King Jr... blah blah blah.' It'll be interesting.)

Don't you love how the whole anti war groups watch over LJ like hawks for communities such as this one so they can rush in and start a flame war because of a few differences in opinion.

I once joined the "antiwar" community, but I wasnt against soldiers. That was pretty much a no no in their opinion. I guess even this supposed "Open minded and peaceful" group of people are actually very narrow minded and unwilling to accept that they too are just as ignorant many of the people they consider to be "ignorant".

Hmm, so i think i'm a wee bit late at joining but i'm sure there will be more wars to come and more pathetic protestors. I'm normally from the lower mainland but I'm up around Prince George/Terrace right now and people are STILL frantic. Grah! I'm 3 hours from the Alaskan border and these morons were running around worried about getting NUKED of all things! If anything, they should be worried about being snowed in and dying of Boredom. The other week they were marching up and down mainstreet blocking the damn thing off so noone with any sense could get to work and go on with their lives. It's one thing to be against war, but it's inevitable and they should keep their views to themselves. If I went around screaming at them then I'd surely get my face beaten into the pavement. Fucking hypocrites. Violet, you're a genius for creating this community. Sankyuuu!

Aw man, this is getting old, old, old [06 Apr 2003|09:12pm]

Thank god this community exists. I live in Venice, CA which is the Liberal Crap-hole of america. It's like the horrible, horrible mirror image of the time I spent in southern Louisiana. The people here are left wing in a perspective that comes not from study and thoughtful introspection, but one that comes out of sheer and utter ignorance. They are LIBERAL REDNECKS! It's like living in a world of Ultra-Left wing Rush Limbaughs.

If I see one more "No Blood For Oil" sign, I'm gonna puke. There is no real political debate going on in these parts, just a bunch of ignorant ass yes men who somehow, dispite gallup poles, despite national reaction, despite the fact that Fox News, as bad as it is, happens to be the most popular network, absolutely believe that everyone in America, outside of rural montana, thinks EXACTLY the same way they do. Christ almighty, what in the Hell does "no blood for oil" mean? Not a goddam thing, that's what. It's just a cool thing to think that those mean old oil companies, which everyone hates for making gas $2.20 at the pump, are somehow responsible for something that goes deeper than any of these peanut brained morons can comprehend.

And what possible credentials do all these obnoxious celebrities have that makes their opinion so valuable. "Well, I'm not the president, but I play one on TV. And I say, war=bad, and no one is listening to the 'majority' of Americans." Shut up, shut up, shut up! Now I know how it must have felt to be a centrist during Viet-Nam. Half of america hates the other half, simply because a few relatively intelligent americans have encouraged millions of numbskull idiots to yell at each other on each side of the issue. What's worse, is that by backing politicians into a corner they probably worsen the whole situation.

I kind of liked Venice when I first moved here. Liberal yes, but mostly laid back. Now it is PURE HELL. I hope to god that U.S. troops take Baghdad and find Osama Bin Laden camping out in the Imeprial Palace, sitting in front of a pile of severed heads, a couple barels of smallpox, and the Prime Minister of France. And speaking of France, France ain't right! France is a smarmy, failing political power, with a history of starting international problems like, say, The Vietnam War, and then dumping their problems on the rest of the world, who is trying to belly back up to the teat of world leadership by shamelessly using the most dangerous world affair in recent memory. And, by putting themselves in an intractable position, with no negotiation, they essentially made the US have to go to war. And why? Because the care about peace? No, because their still pissed off about World War II and miss their spot at the big-boys table.

And I should follow up by saying that I was, and may still be, ultimately opposed to the war, and respect Russia's, and to a lesser extent, Germany's position. France can go suck an egg. And now they're grandstanding for a piece of the reconstruction pie? Screw them. If TotalFinaElf wants a rebuilding contract, maybe they should look to Algeria, a country France has been systematically destroying since World War II.

Anyhow, that's my rant. One more thing. Michael Moore is just as bad as Rush Limbaugh. I hate them both. Simply because an ultra-conservative, smarmy bastard like Rush exists doesn't make what an ultra-liberal, smarmy bastard like Moore says OK. It makes them both idiots.

That said, peace, love and prosperity and all that good stuff to all y'all.

Beat me to the punch [27 Mar 2003|02:33pm]

I was tired of all the war protests, and then really annoyed by those who would snarl traffic in order to be heard (on a topic everyone already knows about so they're not actually raising awarenes, they're just being a pain in the ass). I figured I'd start an anti-anti-war group, but lo and behold it is already out here!

Peaceful protests are fine... my kids march in them. but don't stage public disturbance protests, or I'll come along and peacefully protest by peeing on them.

[ mood | okay ]

So this is my new community. I've never made a community before but I decided that I'm DAMN tired of hearing about the fucking war. I'm especially tired of having to listen to Canadians bitching about it. WE AREN'T EVEN INVOLVED! SHUT UP! Argh..Anyway, yeah. I guess this is a place to bitch and vent about the fucking anti-war idiots who won't shut up. I'm not PRO war, I just DON'T CARE!
